AWS Electronics Group is supporting significant growth in the automotive sector by investing in an inline laser marker. The company is currently already contracted to produce in excess of three million automotive PCBs in 2016, and this investment in high-end equipment from German manufacturer, Asys, is much more accurate and 30% faster than traditional automatic label marking previously used by the company. It also increases AWS’s board marking capacity by 50%.
AWS has won several significant automotive programs recently, both at its UK Technical Centre in the UK and its low manufacturing cost facility in Namestovo Slovakia. “The Asys laser marking machine has already proved its mettle − it has been running now for three months at upwards of 4000 units per day and has yet to produce a single bad mark,” said AWS’s Group Technical Director, Robert Lackey.
